Funding

Thinking of applying for funding?

The Levenmouth Reconnected Programme is welcoming applications for grant funding for proposed projects that support the four key grant themes:

  • Opportunities for all
  • Inclusive jobs and growth
  • Thriving places
  • Community led services

Projects must also maximise the economic and social value of the re-opened rail link to Leven to the communities of the Levenmouth area.

Applicants can be from any of the following groups and don't have to be based or live in the area to apply. However the project must take place within the programme boundaries.

  • Community and voluntary organisations (constituted bodies such as development trusts)
  • Businesses
  • Public organisations
  • Partnerships
  • Social enterprises
  • Charities
  • Community interest companies

Eligible areas

Any proposed project must fall within an area(s) of the Levenmouth Council Wards 21 and 22. These area boundaries are defined within the map below. Please insert the postcode of the project location to check if it falls within these boundaries.
